What is your theory regarding which woods to choose when mating a neck? Do you try and match the two with same boards when possible or do you mix n match ? I've got two batches o mahogany, both cut 80's. One is a good 50% heavier and more dense than the other. I am getting ready to decide whether to mix n match the two or keep the same boards together to use as neck and body So a denser heavier mahog body mated with a less dense neck is one choice and the other is to mate two dense pieces together. any ideas? similar to mating a maple neck with maghog body I suppose would be near equivalent to mating the two types, is my current theory. But the other side thinks it'd be best to keep the neck and body using same wood.
